Team Blue Wins 2016 PBA Fall World Series

The 2016 PBA Fall World Series wrapped up Saturday afternoon. Team Blue took the crown with a 12-4 win over Team Red. Team Red was the top team in the round robin portion of the World Series, finishing with a 4-2 record, the same as Blue, but a better head-to-head record captured the tiebreaker. With the top spot Red automatically earned a birth in the championship game. Team Blue had to beat Team White on Friday afternoon to advance to the final. In a razor close game Blue edged out Red 3-2 to earn their spot in the last game of the fall.

 

There were some very impressive team and individual performances over the two-week World Series. Veteran catcher Carter Witbeck who was a captain on Team Blue led the World Series with a .571 batting average, and a .667 on-base percentage in 27 plate appearances. Witbeck also contributed with 7 runs and 8 RBI’s.  He was named the World Series MVP. On the other side of the ball Blue’s top pitcher was Greg Hollman. A newcomer this year, Hollman had 2 wins in 12.2 innings pitched with a 0.95 ERA and a World Series best 15 strikeouts. Congratulations to both players!

 

Saturday marked the end of the fall schedule. Sunday will be the annual Marathon Game, but starting next week the program will move inside. It was a very good World Series considering it got off to a daunting start, losing 3 playing days due to snow. When the field was playable the action was intense, exciting and competitive. Three things the coaches preach year in and year out. The coaching staff was very happy with how well the boys competed this fall. It is a testament to this program, and the philosophies we teach.

 

With the end of the Fall World Series the boys will now head inside for the always-intense weight and condition program. Players will be inside working out each week until the Christmas Break. Each player will have a sit down 1 on 1 meeting with the coaching staff to discuss where they fit in the program, and when the players return after Christmas they will do so on the Varsity or Junior Varsity team.

 

Thank you to anyone who came out this fall to support this great program. Without the support of the players, parents, volunteers, board members and the coaching staff the success this program has had, would not be possible.
